Salary Packaging for employers Calcaulator Salary Packaging Calculator Find out what kind of savings you can achieve!

At Prosperity we are aware that organisations are facing increased competition to attract and retain quality employees. It takes more than just good working conditions and competitive salaries to attract and keep good people. Salary packaging can be a key component of an effective remuneration and benefits strategy. 

Employees can choose to receive their salary as a combination of cash and benefits. These benefits are either tax free or taxed at concessional rates. This means they reduce their taxable income, allowing them to maximise their tax benefits and essentially save money.
We work closely with our clients to develop strategic and individually tailored salary packaging programs to meet company needs and requirements.
 
Our core services include:
  • Efficient administration
  • Education workshops
  • Employee communication programs
  • Employee helpdesk
  • Marketing and promotion
  • Payroll functions, including payments and reconciliations
  • Policy development
  • Program structuring
  • Reporting
Salary packaging provides a means for employees to effectively structure their income, by paying for approved benefits from their pre-tax salary.

Benefits to you as an employer

Organisations are realising that salary packaging is a key component of an effective remuneration and benefits strategy. It takes more than just good working conditions and competitive salaries to attract and keep good people.
 
Prosperity’s salary packaging services offer real advantages to both you and your employees. Our program can assist you to improve morale and attract and retain high quality employees, without increasing costs or burdening administration.
 
The administration of a salary packaging program in-house can be costly, time consuming and labour intensive for an employer, including cost of compliance, cost of specialised technology and the costs to employ tax (FBT and GST) experts.
 
Outsourcing reduces the pressure on company resources (HR, finance and payroll), who may currently be spending time managing salary packaging administration, including frequent employee queries and managing the company’s FBT requirements.
 
In many cases, where salary packaging is being managed in-house, Prosperity is able to increase the number of benefits available to employees, improving the overall value of the program.
